New App Reporta Provides Safety Net for Journalists Operating In Danger Zones

Sherry Ricchiardi writes in IJNET that the International Women's Media Foundation (IWMF) has launched Reporta, a security app that, with a touch of a button, can signal an emergency. It utilizes the power of a device common to journalists worldwide -- a mobile phone.

The easy-to-use tool is available free on iPhone and Android devices in Arabic, Hebrew, Spanish, French, Turkish and English.
